Update: I just went out and was able to fit the Rhino Flex into the square bumper tube (no cutting required for me). I put the sewer end in first and it did slide in. It is tight, but it did fit.

If your RV doesn't come with a black tank flush, it is certainly a great option to add and I would recommend doing so. I added one to my last unit and it worked fantastic, my Jayco Superlite came with one from the factory.

Another Rhinoflex user here. After over 2 years of use, it is holding up well. I did the same as Seann and cut off the ears to so it would fit in the bumper.

Thats a great idea with the flush system installed into the tank. I just purchased two of them thru Amazon for each tank. I need to take advantage of this since the tanks are new. What kind of sealant would you recommend for years of leak free operation?

When I did it, I used silicone aquarium sealant and had no leaks.

I usea Rhino Flex hose, have a clear elbow coming off my TT to connect the Rhino to, and use a Tornado tank flusher - so I can see all of the fun and know when the tank is "truely" clean. It's amazing all of the extra stuff the Tornado clears out.

Speaking as a long time camper, when you buy, buy good stuff. Don't buy the cheap stuff. The dealer supplied stuff will get you through a few months and if cash is tight, wait. But then buy the best. And yes, the better rhino flex is what I use.

I do have several friends that have gone to the DC powered pump systems with 25 feet 3/4" hose. That system, including the hoses and necessary connections will run you $300 if you can find it on sale, otherwise over $400. But it is good, reliable and the cleaner than the rhino flex. In a short few years it will be the standard on high end 5th and MH units. High end MH units are already building in as standard the 12V power supply at the dump valve station.

x2 on that setup...

Not the best pic...but here is my setup -- I have a FlushKing type coming off the trailer so I can "see" if I am clean...second gate valve is nice since it is easy to operate. I also have the tornado which really gets the gunk out...

I use the red EZ Coupler fittings and the brown, heavy duty Camco sewer hoses. I have a 10 ft and a 20 ft setup with an additional coupler for situations where 20 ft is not enough. I like this system because the hoses are available at any Walmart or RV store and I never have to search to find replacements as the EZ Coupler fittings will fit on any sewer hose in an emergency. KISS.
